We can't imagine a hotel being built in six days unless we're talking about one of those pop-up hotels but in Changsa, China The Ark Hotel was built in just SIX DAYS.

The 15-story sustainable hotel already had its foundation but using pre-fabricated columns and modules as well as modern construction techniques, construction workers took just 46 hours to finish the main structural components and another 90 hours to finish the building enclosure. While the workers didn't work all through the night, they did work until 10pm each night, something you'd never see happening here.

Of course, we don't know what the hotel is like on the inside (we can't seem to find a website for it) and we hope that they put some nice furniture in there too. But wouldn't it be cool if some hotels could be done this fast? Then again, what would we have to talk about?
